A Little History
Reknowned for their maritime culture, and their ships (the Pinisis), the Bugis from southern Sulawesi sailed one of the last fleets of sailing ships in the world. This allowed them to transport goods and to practise fishing between the islands as they had always done and which was how they reigned the seas for centuries. The ships of the Bugis even sailed to the Australian coast, where they left drawings of their boats in the stone and words that were eventually integrated into the language of the aboriginals of Australia.
Located at the crossroads of highly travelled sea routes, Southern Sulawesi and its capital, the large port of Ujung Pandang, remains today the entrance point for Eastern Indonesia. The Spanish and Portuguese galleons, followed by the British and Dutch tradesmen, sailed in these seas in search of spices under the escort of their soldiers to protect themself from the attacks carried by the intrepid Bugis and their frightening Pinisis.
